An early trendsetter of Spain’s tourism industry, Mallorca continues to be a holiday destination rivaled by few others. With its countless sun-drenched beaches, perennial blue skies and rich historical heritage, hikers, climbers and cyclists are drawn to this Balearic island. To top it all, its capital Palma has blossomed into one of the buzziest and most cosmopolitan in Europe. Here is our expert round-up of places to stay to suit every type of traveller.

Surrounded by leafy woods on the island’s most easterly tip, the Predi Son Jaumell Hotel Rural exudes an undeniable feeling of remoteness. The immaculately updated 16th-century country house is set in extensive herb-scented gardens, centred on a heated pool lined with loungers and daybeds. Michelin-starred chef Andreu Genestra weaves his magic in the kitchen, with many ingredients homegrown in the surrounding fields. After lunch, go for a hammock snooze under the dappled light of an olive tree or take a long walk through unspoiled nature. Bliss.

2. Carrossa Hotel Spa Villas

The splendid centrepiece to a huge 800-acre country estate, the Carrossa Hotel Spa Villas is a beautifully restored manor house dating back over three centuries. Sumptuous suites and luxury villas make up the accommodation, while a 20-metre infinity pool offers a dreamy spot to soak or sunbathe. The serenely bucolic setting – a few kilometres from Artà town – provides some wonderful views across this corner of the island. Head to the restaurant’s elevated terrace for an eyeline all the way to the sea.

The 17th-century manor house has been lavishly restored, while polished flagstone floors, vaulted ceilings and a scattering of antique artifacts maintain a sense of history. Guest rooms artfully balance the past and present, too, while the celebrated restaurant applies modern techniques to locally sourced seasonal produce. Don’t forget to browse the hotel’s art collection, which includes works by David Hockney and Marc Chagall.

The picturesque town of Artà is increasingly becoming a tourist destination in its own right, and the high quality of hotels reflects this. This adults-only boutique property, built as a grand townhouse in the 18th century, has all the architectural elegance typical of its kind. Guest rooms are finished in calming tones, while blending modern angles effortlessly with period features. A secluded garden offers a strip of water to cool off in amongst tall cypress trees and aloe vera plants.

Es Revellar proudly declares itself the only art resort in Spain, and you’ll find one of the largest art collections on Mallorca on display here. The sprawling 600-year-old estate – located in the rural town of Campos in south-east Mallorca – is made up of 12 buildings spread over almost eight acres of grounds, and contains thousands of pieces of art to admire as you stroll around. Most of the guest rooms are as colourful and individual as the artworks, with others steeped in rustic old-world charm.

6. Hotel El Llorenç Parc de la Mar

El Llorenç Parc de la Mar has certainly brought something new to Palma’s already impressive collection of high-end boutique hotels. Celebrating the island’s Moorish past, geometric latticework features as a motif throughout, mingling with glitzy splashes and modern art. Making the most of its position on the city’s ancient ramparts, Palma’s only rooftop infinity pool boasts broad views over the bay. An impressive spa also provides instant serenity, while the DINS restaurant has been awarded a Michelin gong.

7. Finca S'Estelrica

The guiding philosophy at Finca S’Estelrica is all about harmony with nature. This traditional Mallorcan stone finca (country estate), situated near the pretty town of Artà, has been lovingly converted into an eco-farmhouse designed to complement the natural countryside surroundings. Guests are encouraged to discover the farm’s vast estate, brimming with figs trees, pines, and holm oaks, or explore further afield from one of the many trails that surround the property. Alternatively, just lounge by the gorgeous infinity pool and order another glass of locally produced vino.

8. Casa Caimari

Formerly a 19th-century townhouse in the tiny village of Caimari, this family-run guesthouse has lost little of its quaint rustic charm. Updated interiors are contemporary yet cosy, a mood that continues into the four double bedrooms. It’s run by married couple Rosi and Andy, who provide a buffet breakfast for guests each morning and are always available around the clock. Located at the foothills of the Tramuntana mountain range, it’s particularly popular amongst hikers and cyclists.

Converted from an 18th-century oil mill, Ca’s Xorc was reborn as a luxury country retreat. The property is still encompassed by lemon trees and olive groves, while its position on a remote hillside overlooking Sóller valley gives a genuine sense of disconnection from the modern world. A large infinity pool provides scenic panoramas while you soak, and the surrounding landscape offers endless exploration of the region’s natural beauty.

The Cap Rocat stands out as one of the most lauded hotels on Mallorca. Forged out of the sandstone cliff to guard entry to Palma Bay, the ancient fortress was transformed into a strikingly unique luxury hotel. Filled with sunlight and saltwater pools, the spa was carved down into the bedrock and feels like entering another world. It’s all set within a protected nature reserve and a haven of seclusion and tranquility, and has sea views you’ll never tire of gazing at.

11. Ecocirer

Guesthouse

As the name suggests, everything about Ecocirer is geared towards healthy eating and sustainability – every element in the property is 100% recycled. The husband and wife team behind the ecohotel have crafted an experience more akin to a homestay, where guests are encouraged to wind down to a slower rhythm and breathe in the magical atmosphere of the Sóller valley setting. A scattering of quirky and colourful art adds to the uniqueness of this rather special hotel.
